Social Media Influencer Found Dead After Online Bullying, Woman Arrested

Rajeswary Appahu, a 30-year-old social media influencer known online as Esha, was found dead at her home in Malaysia following days of online bullying. The news has sparked outrage and calls for stricter penalties against cyberbullying.

Appahu had filed a police report the day before her death, citing fears of rape and murder. She named two individuals she accused of tormenting her on TikTok. A 35-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the case and is being investigated for criminal intimidation and violations of Malaysia's communications and multimedia act.

Communications Minister Fahmi Fadzil has announced that the topic of cyberbullying will be addressed in an upcoming cabinet meeting. He stressed the need to prevent cyberbullying from becoming normalized and highlighted the difficulty of tracking perpetrators who use fake accounts.

Following Appahu's death, there have been calls for legal reforms and stricter penalties for cyberbullies in Malaysia. David Marshel, deputy chairman of the United Rights of Malaysian Party, revealed that Appahu had confided in him about facing severe online abuse.

Appahu was known for her content on general positivity and beauty. Her death has served as a tragic reminder of the devastating impact of online bullying and the need for stronger measures to protect individuals from such abuse.
